The Spinal Column Plays an Important Role in Health and Wellbeing
The spinal column consists of 24 vertebrae. These vertebrae allow an individual to twist, bend and perform every other action each day. The spinal column also encases the central nervous system, which coordinates and controls the muscles, organs, and tissues throughout the body. When the spinal column is out of alignment, symptoms result.
Spinal misalignment can result in a wide range of symptoms including, headaches, migraines, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, tingling, extremity numbness, extremity weakness, nausea, etc. Therefore, proper spinal alignment is an essential aspect of maintaining general wellness.
Chiropractic care provides a drug-free, holistic option to address symptoms and injuries, including:
Why is important to Seek Medical Treatment for Your Injuries after an Accident
Individuals who have a sports-related injury or who have sustained auto injuries should seek treatment promptly. In respect to seeking medical treatment, it is important to note that there are time limits placed on individuals who sustain injuries in any type of accident.
Therefore, individuals who neglect to seek treatment in a timely manner may find it difficult to attain compensation from the responsible party for their medical care. Furthermore, injuries that are left untreated frequently lead to chronic pain that lasts a lifetime.

An improperly aligned spine creates a variety of problems throughout the body:
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment:
The benefits of chiropractic care are vast and studies show that regular chiropractic treatment is one of the most effective methods of complementary and alternative medicine. Spinal manipulation therapy has been found to improve several medical conditions while providing the following health benefits simultaneously:
- More Restful Sleep Reducing the pain in an individual’s spine, joints and/or neck allows for a deeper, more restful sleep.
- Increased Energy Levels Studies indicated that following a spinal realignment session with a chiropractor, the communication between the nervous system and the brain is improved. This improved communication allows the organs to function better, which ultimately leads to an increase in energy.
- Pain Relief Once our chiropractor identifies a patient’s ailment, a wellness plan is created. The wellness plan the chiropractor creates is designed to manage an individual’s pain. The ultimate goal is to relieve a patient’s pain altogether. Reaching this goal can take time and does usually require multiple spinal adjustment sessions with an experienced chiropractor. Furthermore, modalities can also help with pain relief.
- An Improved Mood Once the chiropractor properly aligns the spine, the increase in blood flow to the brain and the neck typically improves an individual’s mood. In addition, decreasing an individual’s pain frequently improves his/her mood.
- May Decrease the Need for Surgical Intervention Chiropractic care is a holistic approach for dealing with common ailments, such as joint pain, neck pain, headaches and low back pain. Spinal adjustments that are performed by a licensed chiropractor can prevent the need for surgical intervention.
- Can Lower High Blood Pressure Following a spinal adjustment, the flow of blood to the heart increases. Therefore, the heart does not work as hard to supply the rest of the body with the blood it needs.
- Improved Flexibility When the vertebrae of the spine are properly aligned, the muscles and ligaments can stretch and move as they were intended to.
Chiropractic care for Neck Pain and Headaches
Neck pain is highly common and often occurs from poor posture or motor vehicle accidents. If not properly treated, neck pain can grow more severe and cause headaches. Oftentimes, neck pain and radiating headaches can be treated with chiropractic care.

Hands-on care is common during a chiropractic adjustment and is a form of manual therapy. Chiropractors are trained to know how to manipulate the vertebrae safely and effectively. Our team includes only the most skilled chiropractors in Miami and Hollywood.
During the hands-on portion of your chiropractic treatment, your doctor of chiropractic in Miami will use controlled force to move the joint of your spine into its appropriate position. You may hear a popping or cracking sound. This is the sound of air escaping from the joint, and it is perfectly normal. Many chiropractic patients at our Miami office find that their chiropractic adjustments relieve discomfort immediately while others take some time to feel the effects.
